The most common color of aventurine is green; it is used primarily at the heart chakra to both activate and clear. It is also an excellent protector of the heart chakra, providing for a shield to block the entry from those who wish to “tap-in” and use the energy of another.
Aventurine provides for balancing of the male/female energies, enhancing ones creativity, supplementing motivation in activities, and augmenting the “pioneering” spirit.
It also reinforces ones decisiveness, amplifies ones leadership qualities, and is a willing participant in instinctive action.
It facilitates balancing and alignment of the intellectual, emotional, physical, and auric bodies.
It has been used in rituals of the medicine wheel, to show to the spirit guides the connection with the healing light of the heart. In these ceremonies it is held at the heart of each participant around the medicine wheel; it has been reported that, during contact with the spirit guides, the participants have felt a “wash of love” fall around them.
